“Fashion industry changed dramatically in the past four years. Certainly, the good old wholesale and retail schemes are still working, but mainly for big companies. The new players are obliged to use other rules that are forming new shape of the industry. That’s why we arrange Fashion Tech Summit: to push boundaries of fashion industry perception and present new abilities, innovative business models, basing on foreign and native examples. I believe the new startup contest on Fashion Tech Summit to help enhance the process of formation of new creative proprietors` wave.”
